    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there are any other wristwatch fans here on G3D. What kind of watches do you own, which one are you most proud of and which one do you still want to buy?

    I currently have two Omega Seamasters (one quartz and one automatic):

    The automatic one is the co-axial version. Which has a great timepiece.

    One Breitling Navitimer 01:

    And one automatic Seiko watch:

    The watches that are still on my wish list are the Rolex Yachtmaster II, an IWC and a Lange & Sohne.

    Love the design on watches, but can't stand to wear one, or anything on my wrists for that matter, just so irritating.

    +1 absolutely love the craftsmanship that gets put into some watch designs, but that constant annoyance around you wrist drives me nuts.

    Just this - but never kept; belonged to my daddy. A cheap Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium is good enough for all day use.

    Yes, i am.

    Although i don't go for very expensive watches (cause i can't afford them),
    i love unique and creative watches.

    I'm currently sporting a black / cyan ZIIIRO Mercury.

    sure did.. sold the gmt for the panerai they were both too big.. had a cartier for a bit, sold that too as i needed money..

    the new olympic ones are gorgeous aren't they? :)

    and to those annoyed with watches.. yup i still get that, but its getting better (its been about a month, and i'm starting to get used to the ghosck)

    i only buy g-shock watches because i like them, wouldn't buy anything else and yes i wouldn't wear a Rolex even if you give me one for free, i'd sell the watch and keep the money :D


    i also own a Casio watch i bought many years ago, includes remote control function to use with tvs lol almost identical to this one.

    Well, I'm a watch dork. I don't really have much money to supply the hobby though. I've got a casio waveceptor, a relic watch (they dont seem to have model nums) in gunmetal, and a chinese skeleton watch. I like the Omega speedmasters. I also would like to own a tourbillion watch someday though. Its fascinating to watch a tourbillion tick...

    My lifelong friend bought me a Montblanc watch, I am scared to wear the thing because it's so expensive so I only wear it on special occasions and when I am definitely not drinking too much.

    Other than that, I have no interest in watches.

    I love Breitling watches, but since I can't afford one, I may have to purchase a replica ;)
